Making a good double flare takes a good tool, the proper cutting of the tube, and some practice. Brake lines from the dealer are usually only available during the time a vehicle is in production, otherwise the common practice is mechanics to make up what they need in the field.

Premise tubing is available in the stores, but it does not have the correct line nut for the master cylinder. Some shops like NAPA carry adapters to fit the premade lines to the master sized fitting, but you have to bring the old fitting with you.

DOT 3 is the production fluid in the Fords, available at every auto parts store.
